Randall, how do you fancy doing a release? I can mentor you. (I'm gonna do
the same for Dirkjan.)

Would like to get a few more eyeballs on the release procedure. Think this
might help you as you drive the Git stuff also.

Was planning to do a release today, but could pause that and walk you
through it instead?
